Nutcase Basket Large
RECYCLED PAPER is used to manufacture baskets and lampshades of this collection. Macrame out of recycled paper cord was one of Korea’s most emblematic craft and was a true popular hobby. Behind this tradition lies the nation’s concern to recycle used paper. Both women and men practiced this socially permeable craft: the nobility, city-dwellers, countrymen, and servants, all dedicated their lost hours making these objects, including monks who saw in this practice an excellent way to spend their spare time in the temple. Although this know-how persists in South Korea, it’s becoming very rare. Lack of time, possibly! The two women we started to work with are now training young women to knot these objects adapted to our daily needs.
